During past semesters the process for purchasing your textbooks through the PCC bookstore included these steps, and it has probably remained the same. First, you should have your course registration sheet with you as you place your order. Next, click on Fall 2015, and then look for EF-English to begin your search. You'll select the course name and number, and then the section number for the class in which you are enrolled.

Books: Paper v. Plasma
As I mentioned above, Kindle or other electronic editions are not allowed for my classes. You must buy the paperback or hardcover copies. Why? For one reason listen to the radio program and read the article that follow below.
"Your Paper Brain and Your Kindle Brain aren't the Same Thing"
Manoush Zomorodi, managing editor and host of WNYC's New Tech City, recalls a conversation with the Washington Post's Mike Rosenwald, who's researched the effects of reading on a screen. “He found, like I did, that when he sat down to read a book his brain was jumping around on the page. He was skimming and he couldn’t just settle down. He was treating a book like he was treating his Twitter feed," she says.
